Analysis of thermal-hydraulics fluctuations in pressurized water reactors (e.g., local and global temperature or density fluctuations, as well as primary and charging pumps fluctuations) has various applications in calculation or measurement of the core dynamical parameters (temperature or density reactivity coefficients) in addition to thermal-hydraulics surveillance and diagnostics. In this paper, the thermal-hydraulics fluctuations in PWRs are investigated. At first, the single-phase thermal-hydraulics noise equations (in the frequency domain) are originally derived, without any simplifying assumptions. The fluctuations of all the coolant parameters, as well as the radial distribution of...

Extensive experimental investigation was conducted to study the effect of leading-edge roughness on the state of the boundary layer of a wind turbine blade section. The application of surface grit roughness simulates surface irregularities that occur on the wind turbine blades. The measurements were done using multiple hot-film sensors and surface pressure transducers in both static and plunging oscillation of the airfoil. Frequency domain analysis was used to determine the state of the unsteady boundary layer

Classic identifiability analysis of flow barriers in incompressible single-phase flow reveals that it is not possible to identify the location and permeability of low-permeability barriers from production data (wellbore pressures and rates), and that only averaged reservoir properties in between wells can be identified. We extend the classic analysis by including compressibility effects. We use two approaches: a twin experiment with synthetic production data for use with a time-domain parameter-estimation technique, and a transfer-function formalism in the form of bilaterally coupled four-ports allowing for an analysis in the frequency domain. We investigate the identifiability, from noisy...

A new phase noise calculation method is proposed in which noise sources are modeled with single tone sources. It uses a nonlinear frequency-domain analysis to calculate total gain from noise sources to the output phase noise. This single tone (ST) simulation directly calculates noise frequency contributions and is much faster than Hajimiri's impulse sensitivity function (ISF) method. A quadrature VCO has been implemented in TSMC 0.18-μm CMOS and the predicted phase noise matches measurement. © 2009 IEEE

A resolution-improved active millimeter-wave (MMW) imaging structure, based on the theory of structured illumination, is proposed in this paper. The structured illumination is a well-defined concept for surpassing the diffraction limit in optical microscopy, where imposing grating patterns on the targeted object could help in moving the object frequency spectrum along the desired direction in the spatial frequency domain. This frequency shift helps in passing different parts of the object's frequency spectrum through the diffraction filter. The combination of resultant images provides a framework to pass a wider frequency band of the object, thereby achieving super-resolution. This idea has...

This study is conducted aiming to identify the dynamics of a tapered beam, embedded by piezoelectric layer. Narrowing the tip of the beam equipped with piezoelectric patches leads to optimize the output power after excitation by the frequency sweep input. An accelerometer is installed on the beam base, which measures the acceleration that is applied to the system. Piezoelectric sensors also measure the generated voltage. The experimental test data is handled through CIFER software, using Fourier transform and Bode plot in the frequency domain, to obtain appropriate transfer functions. MATLAB is used for nonlinear simulation and validation of discrete transfer functions by a set of data that...

Ground-penetrating radar is usually employed to detect such buried objects beneath the ground as pipes, cables, and mines. There exist several methods for monitoring the buried objects, some of which require a relatively long time and heavy computations to create an appropriate image. The signal sent to the environment is reflected due to the characteristic features of the environment, which eventually leads to detection of the buried objects. For detection of the near ground surface targets, there is a very poor distinguishability between the signal reflected from the buried objects and the one from the ground itself. Buried objects in this case are detectable using ultra-wide band signals...

In the present study, the development of a neutron noise simulator, DYN-ACNEM, using the Average Current Nodal Expansion Method (ACNEM) in 2-G, 2-D hexagonal geometries is reported. In first stage, the static neutron calculation is performed. The neutron/adjoint flux distribution and corresponding eigen-values are calculated using the algorithm developed based on power iteration method by considering the coarse meshes. The results of the static calculation are validated against the well-known IAEA-2D benchmark problem. In the second stage, the dynamic calculation is performed in the frequency domain in which the dimension of the variable space of the noise equations is lower than the time...
Modal parameter identification of rotary systems based on power spectral density transmissibility functions, Article 2018 SAE World Congress Experience, WCX 2018, 10 April 2018 through 12 April 2018 ; Volume 2018-April , 2018 ; 01487191 (ISSN) ; Sharif University of Technology

Operational modal analysis based on power spectral density transmissibility functions (PSDT) is a powerful tool to identify the modal parameters with low sensitivity to excitations. The rotor systems may have the asymmetric damping or stiffness matrices which can lead to increase the difficulties of the identification procedure. In this paper, a new method is proposed to identify the modal parameters of the asymmetric rotary systems by the operational modal analysis based on the power spectral density transmissibility functions. For pole extraction from the PSDT function, a proper parametric identification method such as the Poly-reference Least Squares Complex Frequency-domain method...

In recent years, different studies have proposed new methods for DNN-based feature extraction and joint acoustic model training and feature learning from raw waveform for large vocabulary speech recognition. However, conventional pre-processed methods such as MFCC and PLP are still preferred in the state-of-the-art speech recognition systems as they are perceived to be more robust. Besides, the raw waveform methods - most of which are based on the time-domain signal - do not significantly outperform the conventional methods. In this paper, we propose a frequency-domain feature-learning layer which can allow acoustic model training directly from the waveform. The main distinctions from...

In this study, an analytical method is proposed for design of double-ridged horn (DRH) antenna, which is based on impedance matching of the structure by the method of least squares (MLSs). New basis functions are used for the MLS to obtain optimum impedance functions for the realisation of maximum matching. The resultant reflection coefficients are compared with available methods. The proposed optimum synthesis method is applicable to the arbitrarily tapered DRH antenna with a general cross-section. As two applications, the proposed method is used for the design of linear and non-linear flares of DRH antennas with rectangular and elliptical cross-sections for operation in the frequency band...

Operational modal analysis techniques classically have been developed based on the assumption that the input to the system is a stationary white noise. While, in many practical cases, the systems are excited by combination of white noise and colored noises (harmonic excitations). Consequently, in conditions where non-white noises are present, the existing OMA methods cannot completely distinguish between the system poles and the induced poles due to colored noises. In order to overcome this weakness of OMA methods, some researches have been conducted in the field. In this paper, a new method is proposed for identifying the modal parameters of the system under the unknown colored noises,...

This article presents an innovative application of the frequency domain decomposition method based on an acoustic and vibration response. Frequency domain decomposition method has been frequently used for operational modal analysis testing in the last decade to identify modal parameters for in-situ case studies. For these studies, the outputs of the vibration response through accelerometers have been employed in the analysis. In this article, the frequency domain decomposition method is employed, for the first time, to analyze both acoustic and vibration response of the building which is a novel application in building vibration response. As a case study, a cylindrical shaped seven-story...
Frequency data-based procedure to adjust gain and phase margins and guarantee the uniqueness of crossover frequencies, Article IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics ; Volume 67, Issue 3 , 2020 , Pages 2176-2185 ; Tavazoei, M. S ; Sharif University of Technology
Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc 2020
Analytical data-driven tuning procedures with the aim of adjusting the values of frequency-domain specifications, e.g., gain margin, phase margin, and corresponding crossover frequencies, are among the most popular control techniques in industrial control. But, the multiplicity of crossover frequencies, as an Achilles' heel in these procedures, may cause that the obtained control system does not meet the intended frequency-domain objectives. Motivated by this fact, this paper improves a newly proposed data-driven tuning procedure for arbitrarily setting the values of gain and phase margins and crossover frequencies, in the viewpoint of guaranteeing the uniqueness of crossover frequencies....

In this paper, we analytically study the influences of using frequency domain approximation in numerical simulations of fractional order systems. The number and location of equilibria, and also the stability of these points, are compared between the original system and its frequency based approximated counterpart. It is shown that the original system and its approximation are not necessarily equivalent according to the number, location and stability of the fixed points. This problem can cause erroneous results in special cases. For instance, to prove the existence of chaos in fractional order systems, numerical simulations have been largely based on frequency domain approximations, but in...
Stability preservation analysis for frequency-based methods in numerical simulation of fractional order systems, Article SIAM Journal on Numerical Analysis ; Volume 47, Issue 1 , 2008 , Pages 321-338 ; 00361429 (ISSN) ; Haeri, M ; Bolouki, S ; Siami, M ; Sharif University of Technology
In this paper, the frequency domain-based numerical methods for simulation of fractional order systems are studied in the sense of stability preservation. First, the stability boundary curve is exactly determined for those methods. Then, this boundary is analyzed and compared with an accurate (ideal) boundary in different frequency ranges. Also, the critical regions in which the stability does not preserve are determined. Finally, the analytical achievements are confirmed via some numerical illustrations. © 2008 Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics

In this Letter, based on the stability theorem in fractional differential equations, a necessary condition is given to check existence of double scroll attractor in a fractional-order system. Numerical simulations are presented to evaluate accuracy of this condition in fractional-order Chen and Lü systems. Also, we show that using frequency domain approximation in the numerical simulations of fractional systems may result in wrong consequences. For example, this approximation can numerically demonstrate chaos in the non-chaotic fractional-order systems. Unfortunately, this mistake has occurred in the recent literature that found the lowest-order chaotic systems among fractional-order...

In this study, the SD-HACNEM (Sharif Dynamic - High order Average Current Nodal Expansion Method) neutron noise simulator in two energy groups using a second-order flux expansion method for two-dimensional rectangular X Y-geometry has been developed. In the first step, the calculations were performed for the steady state and results of ACNEM (Average Current Nodal Expansion Method) and HACNEM (High order Average Current Nodal Expansion Method) were examined and compared. To solve the problem, the power iteration algorithm has been used to calculate the distribution of neutron flux and neutron multiplication factor by considering the coarse-mesh (each fuel assembly one node). To validate the...
